Later in this year St Cecilia’s received $15,000 from the Department of Education and Training under the Regional Conservatorium Program and was formally accepted into the NSW Regional Conservatorium Association in 1999 when recurrent funding from the Department of Education and Training commenced.

For the next 2 years the centre became a campus of the Northern Rivers Conservatorium.1999 - 2003Later in this year St Cecilia’s received $15,000 from the Department of Education and Training under the Regional Conservatorium Program and was formally accepted into the NSW Regional Conservatorium Association in 1999 when recurrent funding from the Department of Education and Training commenced.
